Emily looked over the makeshift table, lips pursed. The nightmare peddler swayed, ugly face indifferent.
“This one?” Emily asked, pointing to an angular silver one.
“Cut you,” the man grunted.
“And these?” Two distressed yarn balls.
“Spiders. Spiders everywhere.”
“Not very creative,” Emily sniffed.
“Scare you,” the man gasped, “to death.”
Emily raised an eyebrow and smirked. “We’re done here,” she told me.
We’d crunched three steps across the gravel when the nightmare man spoke again. “No,” he said.
The opening of his tent was dark behind him. “Please,” he said again, straining to focus his eyes.
We kept walking.
